Official Title: Longitudinal Assessment of Risk Factors For and Impact of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Acquisition and Early Anti-Pseudomonal Treatment in Children With CF

The purpose of this study is to better define risk factors preceding first isolation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) from respiratory cultures in cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease and to better define clinical outcomes associated with acquisition of Pa. This study will also collect and bank DNA samples for current and future studies designed to enhance the understanding of the pathogenesis of CF.
